Mapping of Long-term Public and Private Investments in the Development of Covid-19 Vaccines
Presentation of the Study for the Special Committee on the COVID-19 pandemic - 23 March 2023, 16:30-18:30
The Study ‘Mapping of Long-term Public and Private Investments in the Development of Covid-19 Vaccines’, which was commissioned by the COVI committee, will be presented by its authors in the EP on Thursday, 23 March 2023, 16:30-18:30 (Spinelli 1E2).
This study provides a mapping of funds contributed by different actors for vaccine R&D and for the expansion of production capacity of COVID-19 vaccines, with the focus on the EU. The study assesses the necessity for continuing public support to R&D on vaccines. Furthermore, after highlighting current market failures, the study discusses possible new incentive mechanisms in the public interest for vaccine R&D, designed to grant equity and accessibility, as well as rewards in line with risks.
The authors, Prof. Massimo FLORIO (University of Milan and CSIL), Assistant Prof. Simona GAMBA (University of Milan) and Chiara PANCOTTI (Senior Researcher CSIL) will present their study. This will be followed by a questions and answers session.
